On Thursday, January 9, community members from Bronxville and neighboring towns attended an interactive forum on the campus of Concordia College New York.
President John A. Nunes, joined by Chief Administrative Officer Dr. Mark Wahlers, gave a brief overview covering the state of the College: successes, challenges, and strategic plans for the future. For the majority of the hour-long event, community members were able to ask questions in an informal exchange of information.
Topics raised by the engaged and well-informed group sparked discussion around the College’s enrollment model, student body, academic programs, business plan, real estate assets, endowment and fundraising efforts. Challenges and opportunities in today’s rapidly changing higher education market were covered as well.
“President Nunes answered probing questions frankly and non-defensively,” said a community member. “It was an informative and reassuring session.”
Bronxville Mayor Mary Marvin was in attendance, and cited community feedback gathered as part of the village’s comprehensive plan showing that Concordia College scored by far the highest approval rating among Village institutions.
Community members were invited to contact the President’s Office directly with any further questions.
Look for another Conversations at Concordia event in the upcoming months.
